Evaluation of intrauterine immune suppression during pregnancy in a species with epitheliochorial placentation.


Cells capable of suppressing the immune response of PBL to the mitogen PHA are associated with the epitheliochorial placenta during normal first pregnancy in the pig. Because placentation in the pig is noninvasive, these suppressor cells are not associated with decidua. Cells with similar activity are also found between the implantation sites and in the… (More)
